The Global Conflicts series has won numerous prizes including the prestigious BETT Award. The games make it possible for you to explore and learn about different conflicts across the globe.
In Global Conflicts, you will perceive the world through the eyes of a journalist who is attempting to find the best possible story.
Why play Global Conflicts?In Global Conflicts, you are brought closer to a series of problems that are occurring across the world yet, these problems are far from the everyday that the students traditionally witness.
You will interact with individuals who are greatly affected by these conflicts. You are forced to navigate a virtual chaotic world, in which there is no one truth. The games challenge the way you perceive conflicts and society while encouraging them to analyze and relate to international issues, such as globalization, corruption, democracy and human rights.
